About This Listing
Located in the heart of the beautiful medina of Essaouira at walking distance from the beach. Experience the comfort of a sizeable apartment with the beauty of Moroccan and Berber architecture. Perfect for 1-2 couples, group of friends or families.
Our appartment has bedrooms for 4 (1 double bed and 2 singles that can be joined to form a second double bed.) The sofa in the living room is a sofa bed which can host a fifth person. A baby cod is available for families. Wifi Internet is now fixed and working fine.
The Medina of Essaouira is one of the most well-kept medinas in Morocco. Our appartment lies right in the heart of it, next to the famous spice and fish markets and the jewelry souk, yet at the same time at walking distance from the beach. Our appartment lies on a tiny square where at night you can see local children play or people visiting one of the two beautiful Hammams (Moroccan baths) which are right below our house (where Orson Welles shot "Othello"). The surroundings of Essaouira are varied with different excursions that can be made in one day trips. Large, wild beaches reknown for excellent surfing and windsurfing, small villages, Argan oil tree plantage, the famous climbing tree goats and many others are in 10-60 min driving distance.
Outside of the gates of the medina (which is only accessible by foot) there are petit taxis (blue) or large taxis (white) for short and long distances respectively. To circulate the Medina or the nearby beaches, bicicles can be rented in the medina.

..and we got the delicious chocolates! :)
Me and my three friends spend 2 beautiful days in Essaouira and this city definitely got under our skin..
We did not meet Esther and Giuseppe, but they sent reliable person Ahmed to let us in and take care of us. He was very helpful, polite and we understood each other well in spite of language barrier cous none of us four spoke french :))
Esther and Giuseppe was great hosts and was always available to answer any questions or give recommendations. Their apartment is in great location (which we found very easily), it's clean, spacious and decorated with taste, we really loved it.
Definitely consider this apartment when looking for a fantastic place to stay.
Dear Esther and Giuseppe, thank You both for all!
Paldies! (in latvian;)
P.S. We get lucky to be able eat dinner in contiguous Miyame restaurant (in spite it was fully booked). Highly recommend!
The reservation was canceled 29 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a great time in the apartment!
Pablo, the local manager of the apartment, picked us up from Bab Marrakesch and took us to the apartment, even it was really late (10pm) when we arrived. He and the owner gave us a lot of tips where to go and for restaurants.
The apartment is well furnished, clean, safe and quite, even its in the middle of the Medina. Also the shower and beds were comfortable.
Unfortunately the roof terrace was not quite like on the pictures. I guess it was because of the humidity in Essaouira. Also, we couldn't manage to get Internet. The password was missing and I had connection problems with my mobile phone, so I could not reach the owner or Pablo.
All over, we had a great time in the apartment and we would recommend it to everyone who wants to be in the middle of the medina.
Wij hebben genoten van Essouira, dankzij het leuke appartement midden in de medina, maar vooral door de extra informatie, die jij, Guiseppe, ons hebt gegeven. Pablo gaf ons bovendien een warm welkom.
Ontbijtplekken en het dineren 's avonds waren allemaal even leuk en goed.
Verder hebben we genoten van de vissershaven, de scheepswerf en de vele leuke winkeltjes, maar ook de gezellige gesprekken met de bevolking.
Petit problème pour prévenir notre hôte Pablo au départ de notre arrivée (il s'était fait voler son portable et nous n'avons pas pu avoir le nouveau) ce qui a entraîné une attente d'1/2h mais avons pu avertir Giuseppe qui a rapidement tout arrangé.
Accueil de Pablo impeccable, très sympa !
L'appartement est conforme au descriptif, à noter que les chambres sont très bien situées dans l'appartement si bien que l'on n'entend pas les bruits de la rue !
Le logement est situé en plein cœur de la médina, on ne pouvait rêver mieux pour s'imprégner de l'ambiance
An amazing apartment, located in the heart of the city. Margarita, our contact person took a good care of us, she is really nice !
It was impossible to get an internet connection, although there were instruction, but they were too complicated. Other than that we had a wonderful time staying there.
